A FAREWELL WORD
Thou goest to thy Task, Beloved-
Fare forth, with thy forehead bareg--
Go, lift thine eyes to the morning skies
And still thy heart in prayer,-
Then follow in faith thy chosen path
And thy Task shall meet thee there.
Speak low to thy Task. Beloved,
And this shall thy promise he:-
"Unstinted I pour my life's best store
And thy strength thou shalt yield to me.
Thou shalt give in full measure, Beloved,
And thy Task shall keep faith with thee.
Thou shalt sing at thy Task, Beloved,
And thy Task shall sing back to theeg
The deeds that are wrought by thy hand and thy thought-
They shall win new strength for theeg
At thy toil thou shalt hear, oh Beloved,
The truth that shall make thee free.
Go forth to thy Task, oh Beloved!
And thou shalt learn, oh Beloved,
QThank God for this gift no lessj
All the bitter woe that hearts may know
Whose labor no song doth blessg-
Thou shalt know and shalt pity, Beloved
And shalt comfort their sore distress.
Th meed may be praise, oh Beloved,
gr thy Task may be crowned with rueg -
But the Master shall know thy service
If thou to thy Task he trueg
Thou shalt lightly hold the count of gold,
For the Master shall measure thy due.
Thou shalt faint not, nor fail, oh, Belovedg-
Drink deep of the well by the way
Whence courage s rings, - till thy glad heart sings
And exults in the common day,
With its common Task, Beloved,
In the God-given place alway.
Fare forth. with thy forehead bare, -
Go, lift thine eyes to the morning skies
And how thy heart in prayer:-
Then follow in faith thy chosen path
And thy Task shall greet -thee there.

The Student Guild of Simmons College
Early in those bright days when the First Class was alone in its glory, a great desire arose for some association
among the students, which should bring everybody together for a purpose other than class-room work. In response
to this wish, the suggestion was made of establishing an organization which should be called the Student Guild,
and should include as members all the students of the College. Through Miss Arnold's hearty co-operation with
committees of differing functions, plans were drawn up for organization. Early in the spring the student body met
to select the first otlicers of the new association, who included Miss Magrath for the first president of the Student Guild.
as the result of unanimous opinion.
At the Hrst regular Guild meeting, held in April, 1903, interest centered chiefly around the adopting of a constitu-
tion. This in its final draft states the aims of the organization to be "to promote mutual helpfulness and serxice among
the studentsf' Miss Arnold, as honorary president of the Guild, was closely associated with all its early activity and
helped the students to see the best policy for it to adopt. Before the end of the year came, both Miss Arnold and
Dr. Lefavour met the Guild and impressed upon its members the need of using its organized eEort for a definite object.
Miss Arnold further suggested that the Guild assume the care of a destitute child, who had been placed at Miss Drink-
water's school in Greenwich, Blass. This idea met with approval, and all present pledged themselves to earn a dollar
towards the amount necessary for her support during the next year. The care of this child has been continued each
successive year since.
The second year marks the beginning of the real activity of the Guild. The tradition of a reception for wel-
coming new students was instituted early in the fall. Miss Clarke, who succeeded to the presidency upon the resig-
nation of llliss Magrath, labored untiringly to organize the work of the Standing Committees and of the Guild as a
whole. With the addition of the second class came the need for some subdivision of the Guild, which was accordingly
made by dividing it into chapters of about eighteen members each. This arrangement has been continued with
increasing success each year. The question of the desirability of an Honor System for Simmons was agitated in
the ranks of the Guild for several months. It was thoroughly explained, warmly recommended and much discussed.
yet the results of the voting on it were not of such a nature as to make the Faculty feel justified in granting us self-
government in the conduct of examinations.
The third year proved but an echo of the second in the scope and accomplishments of its activity. The recep-
tion, sales and small parties were the common occurrences associated with the Guild. Great excitement was aroused
over the question of starting a college magazine. The discussion pro and con won over many advocates and more
opponents as well, until the final adjustment of the matter was reached in letting it drop. An attempt was made to

To our Alma Mater we always will sing,
With true hearts and glad voices so clearg
For the days that were spent 'neath her sheltering
Are the days that hold memories dear.
Her joys and her gifts were both precious and free,
And her circle of friendship so wide,
So we earnestly ho e that a class we may be,
To stand loyal andptirm by her side.
May we treasure our right to so honor her name,
And to serve her with hearts firm and true,
That she always may look on our lives and our fame
With the ride that is justly her due.
For the blessings and love that she shed year by year
Will bind each of us fast to that home:
And our thoughts and our hearts will be with her for e'er,
Even though we may far from her roam.
So here's to our College, the Gold and the Blue,
Guide our steps in thy love as we leave thee.
And here's to our class Nineteen-Six, Oh, be true
To thy motto that Simmons bequeathed thee.

Dear Simmons, where'er we, thy First Class, may roam,
Our thoughts will turn back to thee, loved college home.
We'll think of the years we have spent in thy care,
And ever we'll bless thee, our college so fair.
Simmons, our coll fre home,
We'll love thee arid bless thee wherever we roam.
When first to the student thy doors were Hung wide,
We cast in our lot with thee, new and untried.
We trusted thy promise, We pledged thee our truth,
And well thou hast guided these years of our youth.
Simmons, our teacher, guide,
We'll follow thy leading whate'er may betide.
In an unbeaten path we have walked through the years,
And have marked out a way with misgivings and fears.
We've groped in the darkness and often have strayed
From the unswerving course that we fain would have made
Still to thee, mother dear,
Most loyal in heart was thy class pioneer.
Our College, in sadness we bid thee farewell!
What we owe to thy teaching our whole lives must tell.
For counsel, for friendship and memories sweet,
Our hearts' grateful tribute we lay at thy feet.
Dear College Home, fareweil!
In lives of true service our love We will tell.
Mary Elizabeth Rathblm.
Tune of "Our Director."
Ought Sir, lift up your voices,
And give a. rousing cheer
For those we leave behind us
In our Alma Mater, dear!
Teachers, friends and fellow-students,
We bid you all adieux.
Three cheers for our sheepskins,
And fifteen for you!

The shades of night had fallen
Upon the college halls,
The drowsy watchman paced his rounds
And made his stated calls.
When suddenly a noise arose
Upon the midnight air,
A noise so weird the watchman shook:
To move he did not dare.
He thought of ghosts and robbers,
Those things that walk at night:
And then the sound drew nearer,
Till in the lantern light
He saw the dreaded objectg
His fears were put to rout.
But his troubles were not overg
The Biology pig was out.
"Precedents are dangerous," '
So they say. '
"We will not establish many
Give the college time to grow,
It is best it should be so,
Else our cake will be all dough,
In a. day.
"We will carefully consider
As we go.
Faculties and Trustees cannot
Wait a while and we will see
Just how every'thing's to be.
In a few years we'll decree
Yes or no.
"Senior Privileges? No,

Other classes coming after 'll
Want them too.

There's a. land that is fairer than day,
It is known as the Boston Back Bay,
'Tis there they put Simmons,
A college for "wimznens,"
And there it is likely to stay.
There's a. dump that is spacious and wide,
It nestles quite close at our side,
No dumping can till it,
No pumping can still it,
' Tis there and will surely abide.
There's a park that is gorgeous and gay,
It lies ternptingly over the way,
But alas 'tis not ours,
And we can't pick the flowers,
And there's nowhere to go when we play.
For one thing poor Simmons still weeps,
It stalks through her dreams when she sleeps
If only the city
On us would take pity,
And give us a campus, for keeps!

History of the Class of 1906
Modesty, my classmates,- not that I would insinuate that we are or ever have been unduly supplied with that
much over-praised virtue,- modesty, I say, compels us to leave to others the task of determining what has been
our ornamental value. No such sense of delicacy, however, need deter us from looking squarely in the face the fact
of our usefulness. How every noble heart quickens at the thought of being of service to posterity! Oh, 1906! Let
your joy be greatg for down through the ages Will your years at Simmons prove an inestimable blessing. Alas, ye
maidens of the future glorious Simmons! little do you realize to what extent your glory is founded upon our martyrdom.
The first beneit which we bestowed upon our college was that of our mere presence. Do I hear a murmur
" Small one that"? Some misguided and malicious Junior, no doubt. I ask any fair-minded person if Simmons
could have been run that first year had we not been at No. 38 to sing, " Amen."
Our first assemblage seems remotely near to us today. On that October morning of 19042 we had come together
from far California, from southern Georgia, and above all, from old New England. We had come to open a new
college,- come trustingly, hopefully, lead by a great faith. The future was untested. uncertain. In Miss IYalley's
"Don't you recollect the feeling
As we sat there silently,
And gazed at each, a stranger,
Our comrade soon to be ?"
It seemed a very simple beginning which we made there in the shadowy reception room at Simmons Hall when
President Lefavour, President Pritchett and others told us in a few unassuming words of the purposes and hopes
with which we had been called together. But simple as it was, each of us seemed to see a time ahead when Simmons
would stand side by side with the best Women's colleges of our land. Right there a warm little feeling of loyalty to
"our" college was born in our hearts. It was our pride then even as now, that we had had faith strong enough to
bring us to be a part of the experiment, and that we had not waited until success was assured.
The history of the whole student body during 1902 is part of the history of our class, although of the 149 students
who entered, only 92 signed our constitution. Unfortunately the minutes of the iirst year were written in an ink
which has now completely faded, leaving only blank pages in the record book. However, we know that the otlicers
were lNIiss Dunmore, presidentg Miss Pollister, vice-president: Miss King, secretaryg and Miss Higgins, treasurer.
That year we organized the Student Guild with Miiss Magrath as president, and chose the charter pin which we
History of the Class of 1906
proudly wear. In the spring Miss Arnold and Miss Cunningham gave us a picnic in Miss Cunningham's splendid
woods at Milton. The year closed with the President's reception and our class dance in the B. N. S. G. gymnasium.
This dance was very kindly allowed on the express condition that it was not to establish a precedent.
Our Sophomore year we entertained the Freshmen and were entertained by them. We also gave them a pic-
nic at Bliss Cunningham's woods in Milton. We chose garnet for our class color and the jacqueminot rose for our
flower. Our oliicers were the same as during the iirst year with the exception of the secretary, Miss Rathbun, who
served until, much to our sorrow, she left us at mid-years. lNIiss Dorothea Nelson finished out her term.
That year we made plans for a sleigh ride. VVe did not have it. We planned a theatre party. We did not
have it. There were reasons.
The college colors, blue and gold, were decided upon late in the Sophomore year, and banners were first dis-
played at the picnic. College spirit began to be a perceptible quantity after we had our colors. Before, it had slum-
bered or appeared only in feverish outbursts which were promptly suppressed.
Junior year our officers were, president, Miss Young, vice-president, Miss Mason, secretary, Miss Litchlieldg
and lNIiss Knowles, treasurer. Again we entertained the Freshmen and a second time called together the entering
class. From necessity we deferred our Junior promenade until our Senior year when there would be a hall in which
to hold it. The chief class affair of the year was our luncheon at Woodland Park Hotel. There were present nearly
all of the class and several not now with us who entered in 1902.
Senior year has been full of plans for graduation. Such recent history does not need summarizing. In Decem-
ber this year we held our Senior Prom in the new dormitory and refectory. In January the Sophomores gave us a
delightful reception, and just recently the Juniors have entertained us pleasantly at Miss Arnold's home. Ouroliicers this
year are Miss Dunmore, presidentg Miss Hanscom, vice-presidentg Miss Walley, secretary, and Miss Emery, treasurer.
We asked this year for those time-honored privileges supposed to be the right of Seniors, but the faculty had not
yet completed its experiments in student docility and was unwilling to establish any such precedent. 1906 has always
A very pleasant feature of this year has been the monthly socials at Simmons Hall to which all 1902 girls have
been invited. A striking characteristic of our class is the tenacity with which we have held to our original 1902 mem-
bership. According to our constitution all girls who entered in 1902, and none others, belong to the class. We have
called ourselves 1902 throughout our four years, and it is only this spring that 1906 has been organized. It has the
same oflicers as has 1002. Of the two class organizations, to most of us, 1906 means littleg 1902, everything.
Facts are a great bore, and I am glad to have done with them. As a relief let us wander awhile in the past.
We will start by a peep into the reception room at Simmons Hall in 1902. A lively dark-haired lady in a green waist
is giving a little motherly talk on the use and abuse of slang. We catch the words, "picturesque vocabulary," and
something about a yearning to tuck somebody up in bed at ten o'clock, and about a good-night kiss.
History of the Class of 1906
An hour later this same room is the scene of wildest confusion. Nevertheless, anxious attention is paid to the
clock. Ten minutes up, the class in a body rushes for the door, only to fall back meek and crushed as a business-
like little woman steps briskly to the desk. Allan brings in the veiled lady. The members of the class proceed
to learn how to stand upon their heads if at any time troubled in church with that faint feeling.
Assembly came at 1Q.10. No girl will ever forget those assemblies of 1902, who has heard a chorus of manly
voices echo through the clear night air, "Simmons, Simmons,- Amen."
On days when there was no hygiene, a long line of girls would fight its way against wind and traffic down Hunt-
ington Avenue and would rush like a stampeded herd into VValker Building. Ah! sad indeed is the fate of the feeble
whose utmost efforts proved unavailing. The door of Paradise is locked. "Too late, too late, ye cannot enter
Afternoons in 1902 we devoted largely to Lowell Building. I quote from Technique, 1903.
" Prof. -'lNIr. B. -, you may begin to translate at line 11.'
"lNIr. B.-'I haven 't prepared thisg I wasn't here last time.'
"Prof.-'That makes no difference. Neither was I.',' No comment seems necessary.
Another glimpse into Lowell Building,-a learned young doctor is saying pleadingly, "Young ladies, if you
will only be good for the rest of the hour I will tell you such a nice little storyf' Few of us in college now, attended
this gentle master's classes. I mention him, however, feeling that his long-suffering patience deserves to be immor-
Our Sophomore year brought changes. Wie heralded with acclaim the advent of callow Freshmen whom we
supposed it our duty to Work into form. VVe were sorrowful when we found ourselves relieved of, or, to be more
exact, forced to forego this duty. Any deficiencies noticeable in the under classes may be attributed to this no-hazing
rule which we established, a rule which we heartily approve in general, yet consider rather a mistake in our particular
case. Our One conspicuous breach of the rule is interesting because of the important laws relative to sound trans-
mission thereby discovered. Dr. IVendell has not yet made public these laws and as I feel that it would be wrong
to anticipate him, I content myself with stating that on this occasion, as we learned from reliable authority, people in the
subway were deafened for life by the uproar which issued from Boylston Chambers. ITe were merely teaching the
Freshmen how to conduct a class meeting. Our Teddy laid her hat aside during the lesson, and an absent-minded
Freshman carried it over to the dormitory. Now Teddy's health was delicate and the weather was most inclement.
These considerations, to say nothing of Teddy's Casabianca-like qualities, make it quite evident that Teddy could
not go home without her hat. Eight Freshmen had to be excused from dinner, to restore the missing article. Teddy
was escorted home in triumph.
Daily themes are the bane of Sophomore existence. Our lives were made bearable that year, lhowever, through
the solicitude and patience of our English professor. Patiently he read the thousand variations of each well-worn
History of the Class of 1906
subject, and patiently he pointed out to us the error of our Ways. Occasionally, an unusually brilliant "piece de
resistance" was read aloud for the delectation of the class. Such a one was Miss Young's " My Other Me" and Miss
Higgins' " Consequences. "
" Those daily themes, those daily themes,
How long-drawn-out their torture seems,
And so 'twill be when we are gone,
Those mournful themes will still ring on."
QAp0logies to Moorej
Our year at Boylston Chambers was marked by a constantly recurring tragedy. WVhat one of us has it not
involved? Stated in brief, this tragedy is as follows: Time 8.59 A.M.g a nine oiclock class on the fifth iioor and one
elevator just starting up - without us.
One more picture before we move on into the new building in the Fenway. Pausing outside a door, a rich voice
falls upon our ears, "Whatever may be said to the contrary, I am still firmly convinced that in spite of all mixtures
of blood to which the English speaking peoples have been subject, the Anglo-Saxon in us prcdominates. Let us
look it up in Webster. Er-r-r, Vfebster seems not to be here. Miss Norris, will you kindly bring him from the
Library P" Poor Helen! Noah was no feather weight.
These last two years we have been at home in our own beautiful building, and some of us have this year lived
in the first permanent dormitory near by. The broad and open campus between the dormitory and college, with
its sparkling river and shaded walks, is our favorite loitering place. Occasionally we stray into the wide grounds
controlled by the Park Commission,but only to return with fresh delight to the campus. A noble bridge has recently
been erected over Simmons River by the citizens of Simmonsville, at a cost I believe of two thousand dollars.
I may seem to have wandered far from my opening premise -for usefulness. This does not trouble me, as
I have noticed that it is a little habit common among eminent writers. To return, -it is our class which has done
the first things. We have established precedent in many waysg indeed we believe that the rule regarding precedent
for succeeding classes stands, "Whatever 1906 has not been allowed to do, that ye may do."
Our greatest usefulness lies in the fact that we have furnished the material for innumerable experiments. What
our famous metrician calls, " The experimenting on us" is our chief glory as well as the source of our affliction
These four years the faculty laboratory has been hard at work. Successful results may be seen in the classes which
follow us. Classmates, this is a faculty secret and must not go any further, but whenever a new plan is discussed and
disagreed upon up in the oak incubator someone is sure to suggest wearily, " Oh, at least try it on ,06."
History of the Class of 1906
But we have had compensations. No succeeding class can ever have the personal intercourse with the Dean
which was ours when numbers were few, no other can admire as we do, the Ene tact and womanly strength of the
head of the Library School, since no other can know the discomforts and inconveniences of the schoolis first year
q The Secretarial School, as well as the Library, suffered many disadvantages because of lack of equipment, but
the organizing ability and good nature of its Head made these as light as possible.
Experimenting with biology our Sophomore year, Dr. Hough gave a course in biological reading. This course
was one of the compensations. After bearing enthusiastically the eulogies pronounced by those in the course, deep
is the regret among all who failed to grasp the opportunity. VVe have had all too little of Dr. Hough's courses. But
regret is unavailing now.
YVe have come to the end of four happy years. Simmons is no longer an experiment. It has proved its useful-
ness,but the standing which it is to take among other colleges rests upon its graduates. Wie, the " first class to enter
thy portals so Wide," are in these days of leaving, resolving in our hearts
" For thy dear sake our lives shall be more fair."
An Inky Glimpse into the Future
Before me stood an immense bottle of writing ink, from which I was endeavoring to H11 a " self-fillingi' fountain
pen,- one of the kind you screw up tightly and then loose at the critical moment when the ink is waiting to rush
in. A lecture was scheduled in tive minutes, and one of my youthful horrors being tardiness to class, I was in a great
hurry, and therefore seemingly extra clumsy and slow. Suddenly a bell sounded. I jumped, striking the bottle
with my elbow, and in a moment a flood of soaking black ink descended upon my highly valued clean blotter. With
the exclamation of " Oh! fudge," which I reserve for the most aggravating circumstances, I started to dry up the
deluge,-then paused and gazed in blank amazement at what was taking place before me. The ink seemed be-
Witched. Instead of settling in one damp,ominous blot, it was running here and there in definite lines, forming let-
ters and figures. IVas it hallucination QPsychology Ij which led me to read in the characters the words " 1906 to be Pi'
Hallucination or no, to me it was startlingly plain, and I immediately determined to cut class and to watch proceed-
ings ffor a moment, however, pausing to meditate on the necessity of an "absence blank" next dayj. After " 1906
to be" appeared the formation " Let him who runs read, " and with the murmured remark "Let it which runs write,"
I glued my eyes upon the fascinating blotter. Before my astounded vision there proceeded a series of the most enlight-
ening scenes I ever witnessed, so detailed and vivid that the voices of the pictured characters easily reached me.
In clear view first I see the outlines of Europe and America, with an immense island of made land halfway
between them, and upon this isle an imposing structure with some quotation about Wisdom on it. By the archi-
tecture fand Mr. Johnston's coursej I recognize the genus library. Slowly the massive doors open, displaying the
words, "International Library. Peace is the foundation of Growth and Power." At the librarianis desk, hair
deceitfully demurely parted, sits a maiden familiar to us all. She peruses - neither a copy of Emerson nor yet of
Elbert Hubbard !- but an ordinary telegram which reads "Come and organize our library - name your own price."
Bess calmly takes a pad and decisively writes " Money no consideration to me. Impossible to do what you ask. Am
pressingly busy at present deciding the German-American controversy as to whether capitalization in International
Library Cards shall follow American or German practice. " I sigh, mentally calculating how much such a telegraphic
communication will cost, but as I remember her famous ability to smooth ruffled feathers and to maintain desirable
peace, I am confident the point mentioned, so vital to the world, will be amicably settled. Bess calmly turns back to
the book she catalogues and I can read the title page, in irreproachable form, imprint given, including year of pub-
lication, year of meditated publication, year of copyright, time of application for copyright-paging, in Arabics
and Romans, etc. The title reads " A simple essay upon the new biological-chemical theory of lifef'-author, Laura
:Hn Inky Glimpse into the Future
Bess takes a copy of "VVho's who anywhere" and turns to the desired entry, which I read over her shoulder,
"Bragg, Laura. Well-known American writer. List of works too long for publication. Consult Norris, Helen,
Annotated bibliography of American books in last sixty years: Most notable work of lVIiss Bragg is a. reminiscent
history of the First Class of Simmons College. Chief book reviewer of America, renowned for rapidity." The last
statement does not surprise me as I recollect the appalling number of books she absorbed during the English course.
The entry goes on -but the picture fades away and a tropical scene presents itself.
Bamboo houses fill the landscape, palms wave their ghostly handlike leaves, and upon all the sun beats with
relentless vigor. It is some time before the geography of my childhood returns enough for me to recognize Cuba.
As I meditate on the scene, a figure in immaculate white approaches, the purity of her costume in striking contrast
to the dark little figures which cling on every side. Edythe Hanscom, for sure, cool and complacent as ever! I see
her enter the schoolhouse and with admiration I note the characteristically systematic way in which she prepares
for the day. When all is ready she looks up- removes her glasses- puts them on again - and then speaks. "A
pleasant surprise for us to-dayg-our Lady Beneficent plans a visit here." Cries of wild joy arise and before they
have subsided a very grand equipage sweeps up the dusty road. In simple and majestic manner Gladys Litchfield
alights. In a nonchalant fashion she throws a few gold dollars to the eager children fa little of the money she couldnst
spend at Commencementj, and then she and Edythe become so engrossed in conversation that the latter forgets her
reputation as the best disciplinarian in the country and the children giggle and whisper at will. From the chat of
the two I learn that Gladys is to found a model school with Edythe in charge. Surely it will be a success!
A smoky, smoky picture merges into shape before me -dim, dusty, dark. Smoke, ah! yes, Pittsburg, and
trotting imperturbably down the street comes Harriet G. Parker, casting a " tall, dark," shadow. Under her arm
is a neat package of bibliography cards, and I am interested to learn that she has become the renowned bibliographer
on -French literature - fsome seed in Reference 4 fell on fertile groundlj I am not surprised to know that she
is a great favorite with her co-workers, whom she easily and apparently without effort always persuades to her opinion
- fone dimple is much more effective than two!j
Then suddenly I am looking at an imposing structure, somewhat prisonlike in appearance. Over the door I
read " Home for the Infirm and Feeble-minded" and I am sorely perplexed to decide what member of our class has
thus ended a brilliant career. As I enter the building the first person I see is Edith Mason,and I gasp, "IVhy! I
never observed any tendency in this direction in 1906." Then I remember a course in Institutional Management
and in Household Architecture, and I realize that Edith is managing this remarkably well-governed institution. The
floors are immaculate and with the exercise of my most vigorous lung powers Qa fairly severe test D I cannot raise an
atom of dust. The polished woodwork serves as a mirror, and the furniture has that carelessly artistic arrangement
which results from long years of training. Ah! Edith, I always knew a remarkable career was before you.
From this exhibition of neatness my eyes are turned to a gaily festive spectacle. Rooms resplendent with flowers
aqn Inky Glimpse into the Future
are before me, rooms filled with a laughing, joyous crowd. With the characteristic romantic tendency of innocent
youth, I immediately conclude that I am viewing a wedding reception, and I feel shivers of ecstatic expectancy,
even while I sigh, "I knew some member of our happy throng would be lured from the straight path of Wisdom."
Then while watching the people throng to and fro, I cogitate on whom I shall see when the bride becomes visible.
" Surely, an H. E. girl," I meditate, remembering a famous article in a Sunday paper. But I am wrong, and as I
catch a glimpse of the figure in white, I see it is Eleanor Young, sweet, gracious, and charming as always. By her
side stands a man whom I shall not describe, whose name I did not catch in the numerous introductions, and upon
which I shall not surmise. My attention is attracted in the meantime by familiar faces in the crowd. There comes
jaunty Josephine Abbott, now a teacher of commercial law and accounts, and following very closely is pretty Louise
Smith, the charming secretary and confndante of a leading politician of the day.
The next scene is pretty, too, but then, Alice Higgins is in it, you know. It is a very full meeting of some club,
and as the speaker sits upon the platform, her face wears the habitual expression of complacent dignity. She rises
and begins, " To-day I speak upon a subject which has interested me since my student days in one of your leading
colleges -' Public Documentsf " Tumultuous applause, and a talkative listener remarks to her neighbor, " Her
specialty, you know." In firm and assured manner our pretty speaker lays down the law for awhile and then con-
cludes, " I shall be glad to answer any objections." Again the loquacious auditor, "I wager she will g-perhaps she
can't argue," then adding as an afterthought, " but she always is so nice about it, you don't mind the hits."
As I meditate upon the truth of these remarks, the scene fades away, leaving before me a mysterious haze. The
shadowy figures, barely discernible through the golden mist, I discover to be Flossy Finley, Ella Waite, Agnes Rear-
don, Lucy Reid and Winnifred Farrell, but I am completely nonplussed to know why they are thus pictured in gold.
Expectantly, like Sir Galahad Ca reference farmliarized by numerous trips to the B. P. L., with its remarkably swift
delivery systemb I await an explanation. Then as a burst of sunshine thro' a gray cloud, an idea comes and I realize
why these five are honored in gold. "Speech is silver but silence is goldenf, "This is in connection with class
meetings " I think, and, as gradually the golden cloudiness clears, I see that Florence Finley is conscientiously index-
ing, Ella Waite writing "Short cuts to shorthand," Lucy Reid "Complicated Cookery," Agnes Reardon "Simplified
Stenography 'i and Winnifred Farrell carefully and apparently happily cataloging.
Suddenly, before I am half satisfied with this fleeting glimpse, a double image appears, and I begin to think
my eyes are affected. Why should I see Grace Knowles as two? I am distinctly puzzled, until it penetrates to my
cortex fPsychology I againj that the lady in question is standing before a mirror. "But" I cry, "Grace Knowles
before a glass, why she never thinks about her looks." When I learn, however, that she has become the standard
by which portraits of beautiful women are regulated, I do not wonder that she occasionally takes a look at herself.
Next appears before me a hall, immense in size- Symphony would be lost in it- and yet I see this building
crowded, people standing everywhere. There is the hush of expectancy until a silver haired figure enters, gowned
:An Inky Glimpse into the Future
in black with a wonderful lattice-work bodice of green panne velvet. With a smile, no, a chuckle! she accepts the
enthusiastic applause and then raises her baton. The chorus of white-robed damsels rise and as one mighty body
fill the hall with their voices. " Marvellous leading," "superb directing" is everywhere audible. Among the singers
are many familiar faces: Anna Ellis, Grace Knowles, Gertrude King and others. After the chorus piece thereis
preparation for a solo and I am puzzled when I see the peculiar piano. The key board is unusually long, the notes
going several octaves higher than is customary. Fortunately a member of the audience enlightens me by remarking
" She has to have a special piano for her accompaniments, as her voice is so extraordinarily high in range? " How
stupid-I might have known," I think, vividly recalling some of F lorence's high executions in the re-echoing halls of
the Fenway building. But other wonders are awaiting me in this same picture. Another solo is awaited and soon
a familiar Hgure enters with quiet self-assurance. Not a trace of nervousness can I discern, and so it is that while
the face is Anna Ellis', the calm composure makes me question my eyes for a moment. But I am in no doubt when
a mellow, deep contralto voice rings outg passionate, rich, and perfectly controlled. The audience applauds most
vigorously and I find myself clapping and crying, " We knew you could do it- the Glee Club did the work."
A most interesting study now is revealed. A series of torture chambers lies before meg a chain of rooms, in each
of which an examination is in process. I see students with wild, hunted expressions, some in utter despair, others
in melancholy despondency. Then a girl enters room No. I, and taking a paper reading at the top "two hours.', she
calmly views it for a moment. After ten minutes of easy and effortless writing, she serenely rises and passes to room
II, while the harassed victims gaze after her in wonder and with envy. So she proceeds through the series and after
the final test appears as the same placid Emma Conner. Her practice at Simmons has stood her in good stead and
now she travels as the "Examination Wonder" to show how it may be done.
But interested as I am in this novel scene, the ink relentlessly blots it and there is pictured a tall girl, dark and
graceful. She sits - at a piano, and I know her to be Gertrude King. The music upon the rack for awhile attracts
all my attention -a sheet of paper covered with weird hieroglyphics. Finally I discover that she plays from a
score of musical shorthand and as easily as though the notes were those intelligible to ordinary mortals. She has
become the famous "shorthand accompanist," a position, I understand, demanding a phenomenal salary. Inci-
dentally I note that on the piano lies a copy of the Philistine. Faithful yet, Gertrude?
The piece of music, however, has a fascination for me, and I again scan it to see if I can decipher any. I am re-
paid for my trouble by discovering the title and composer," 06 Reveries " by one Helen Cashman. 5' Well," I think,c'it's
cheerful to know that in the future there will be some '06 reverying": at present a good march, " '06 Hustling, " would
be more apropos. I listen awhile to the exquisite melody of the piece, with its pathos and joy, but it grows faint
and gradually dies away, and the scene gives place to a view of the slummiest slums of Boston. Tall, dirty tene-
ments rise close and dingy, the streets are filled with a throng of tough youngsters, while men and women lounge in
the doorways. I am not long puzzled to know whom I shall see here, for knowing her propensity for sociological
oqn Inky Glimpse into the Future
work and her unalterable line of once determined action, who else shall it be but Elsie Metcalf? There she is, climb-
ing rickety stairs, investigating dark holes and serving as a guide and mainstay to all the people of the district.
Then suddenly a photograph flashes before me, but of whom I cannot distinguish. Then when in the corner I
notice the signature " Partridge," I guess it is Miss Moseley. I am assured of the correctness of my surmise when
below the picture I see written the remarks,
Miss MARY MOSELEY.
Foremost Cautious Economist of the day.
Renowned for her motto:
"Let us do nothing rash."
Next Mary Rathbun appears,and I Wonder what she is capable of doing after her strenuous year at Simmons.
But she is working as energetically as ever, and by overhearing remarks I learn she has become chief reorganizer of
broken and breaking college organizations. Her time is filled to the utmost and yet she trots about as smilingly as
though never a care had she.
A pompadour comes bobbling along and beneath it I discover the familiar face of Teddy Winn, apile of heavy
books under her arm and a broad smile upon her lips. She is on the way to give her famous imitative monologue
of -we won't say whom,- but I remember well her powers in that direction and how I wish I could go to hear
her - I know that even I should enjoy a hearty laugh. Behind her comes a tall fair girl and I am slightly amused
to learn that Annie Studley is a governess to seven small children - and yet she smiles!
As I look at these two there flashes into sight a wonderful building, entirely of glass. Every window I observe
fwith accuracy bred of catalogingj is raised six and three-quarter inches, every ventilator open two and seven-eighths
inches and every door tightly shut. As I look about, I suddenly hear, " Well! I simply cannot stand it!" and a fam-
iliar Hgure moves to a window to raise it to seven inches. How that brings back old times! As I watch, the figure
speaks again, " Really, I shall faint," and the window reaches seven and one-quarter inches. It would be amusing
were it not pathetic, and when I see a nurse enter and soothingly whisper, " It 's all right, it 's all right," I assure you
I am on the verge of tears. Such a career as I marked for Minerva Hubbard, and to see her here in an asylum for
monomaniacs. is indeed frightful in its pathos. Even while I think, she closes the window, opens a door -but I
shut my eyes to obliterate the affecting scene and when I open them I am happy to look upon a promisingly cheerful
view. May Hurley is shorthanding at a blinding rate with her right hand, typewriting at the same time With her
left. A man is dictating to her and from the letter it is easily deducted that May is chief secretary to a prominent
shoe manufacturer. As I watch he draws a check for her salary, but it would be discouraging to name the sum. It
is the reward of four years of A's and H's and is made up of many ciphers,- well preceded.
This scene gradually changes into a picture presenting every color, shade, tint and hue. It is dazzling, blinding,
and I am bewildered until in the midst of the turmoil I see mild little Edith Emery. When I know that she has be-
o4n Inky Glimpse into the Future
come chemical experimenter of the New National Chemical Institution I am a bit disappointed. I should have
thought the experiences of our four years would have been sufficient to keep her from the cruel occupation of brew-
ing heathenish concoctions for innocent Chemistry I. victims to un-brew.
But if this picture saddens me a bit I am brightened as the last view flashes onto the field. There is Lucy Elder
addressing an interested audience upon the subject, " Our rights,- shall they be ignored P" and I am so interested
in listening to the decided and novel views presented that it seems no time before the scene becomes indistinct and
finally disappears. In vain I wait for more, it is over, this glimpse, imperfect though it be, into the uncertain future
and before me there lies a very soiled, ink-bespattered blotter.
But the pictures have left me a bit dreamy and so it seems very suitable when suddenly from somewhere I catch
the strains of Rubinstein's Melody in F, and the words reach me, " Come 1906, lift your voices in song, here round
the red rose we ever will throngf' I gaze a little reflectively through the open window into the green budding F en-
way, the sky a transparent blue, the earth wearing a Wonderfully hopeful aspect. Then there drifts into sight a
white cloud and I wish what I have done so often before, that I were a poet, then I am sure this cloud would be the
class of 1906 on the sea of life and I should find there a beautiful simile. But it's of no use,-I'm not a poet and
the scene to me simply means, " VVe're a pretty fair sort of class after all, and a mighty good crowd of comrades, and
though we may seemingly drift far apart in years to ccme, yet will we always be bound together by the strong bonds
of college memoriesf,
